Milwaukee radio station 88.9 WYMS/RadioMilwaukee recently featured BUILD in one of their Community Stories. 88.9, a local, independent, non-profit radio station which also happens to be MPS’s broadcasting station for board meetings is committed to the Milwaukee community. In addition to the music they play (which features at least one local artist’s song per hour) they also air stories “about the people and places that make Milwaukee a great place to live.” Story topics include arts & culture, neighborhoods, economic development, healthy living, education & youth, environment, transportation, and technology.
They recently interviewed various people with BUILD and created a piece featuring Tim Dixon, founder of the program, and St. Francis High School Sam Gumas, a senior at St. Francis High School on their BUILD team.
You can listen to and read the piece here.
We are grateful to 88.9 RadioMilwaukee for choosing us as a program worthy of being one of their Community Stories.
